Noah and Maya's Birthdays
|January is a big month as we celebrate both of our perfect children's births. Noah turned 1 and Maya turned 9.|
I can't believe it has already been a year since Noah was born.
He has been such a joy and a perfect baby. We decided on a jungle theme for his party. The decorations were fun as they were the same ones used for my surprise 30th birthday.
We invited our family and friends over for cake and ice cream and had a lot of fun celebrating his birthday.
I made my first cake from scratch as I needed to use Soy milk and an egg substitute so Noah could eat. We were all gathered; very tightly, in the kitchen to watch him enjoy this chocolate goodness.
Noah however ate it very slowly, quietly and timidly. As with all "table food", he likes to play with it and squish it through his fingers.
After cake and ice cream Noah was showered with love. He didn't really understand what was going on but his cousin Lexi (1 1/2 years) really enjoyed opening all of his gifts.
It was a great day and we look forward to all the adventures Noah brings us this next year.
Miss Maya surprised us all by breaking tradition- No Bounc'n Off the Walls!!! The whole family was heartbroken, except Maya.
She was thrilled to instead have a sleep over party and a new Wii from mom and Grandma. Maya was so cute as she could not have been more excited for her sleepover. The next day Maya spent with us.
We opened gifts, watched a movie, ate Dominoes pizza and enjoyed being together. We sure love Maya and think she is the greatest 9 year old we know.
